During breaks while doing a street scene, Robert Pattinson was injured as he was running away from a zealous fan and the paparazzi. He was not watching where he was going and ran into a parked cab. His injuries were not major nor life-threatening, but bodyguards still came to his rescue. See more »

[after Tyler sprays her with water]
Huh. So, this is the whole playful 'you get me all wet' part, right?
Why make it sound cheap?
It is cheap. I've seen this scene a hundred times. You know what never happens in this scene though? Tyler, who doesn't really go to school? Tyler, who doesn't care about his job?

Have you ever noticed how some people can teach you life lessons about who you are what you hold dear? Have you ever passed a stranger and wondered what tragedy they've endured in their lifetime? Have you ever asked why me...or better yet, why NOT me?
Life lessons are often the hardest to learn and you never know who's going to be the instructor. Sometimes it's an actual teacher who fulfills that role. Sometimes it's a friend. Sometimes it's a parent. And while you could argue that we really already know deep down the things these instructors reveal to us, it stands to reason that a reminder now and again about who we are and what we hold dear can and should serve as wake up call or guiding light as we navigate our lives.
And this film, well, I think it reinforces that the inner revelations we oftentimes try to ignore, deny, suppress, and trivialize should be recognized. And valued.
Thoughtful and touching, the film resonates after the lights come up. It's been a long time since a film followed me home.
Kudos to the writers and the cast. Well done all around.
